Rapper Yung Bleu shows love in his hometown city, Mobile Alabama by opening up a soul food restaurant. The restaurant he named, “Gwen’s House” is named after Bleu’s best friend’s mother, Ms. Gwen (Gwendolyn Crawford), who he says was like a second mom to him.
In a recent interview with Fox 10 News, the rapper states “Everybody went to Gwen’s house to either eat or stay there so it’s just a part of my culture growing up.”
The rapper is well known across the country for his music and now wants his supporters to experience a hint of his childhood.
He told Fox 10, “I want it to be like soul food and at the same time family orientated. That’s why I put the arcade games and the chill area,” he said. “I feel like soul food in a good area and setting…I feel like you can’t do anything but win.”

The restaurant recently had a soft opening on December 17 and the turn out was awesome. “Gwen’s House” is located on Government Blvd just east of Knollwood Drive in the same parking lot as Carmike Theaters. This is an awesome thing he has done and I’m definitely looking forward to supporting it!
